Theme-a-licous 2014 January




This is a humming bird and fuchsia cross stitch that I started over 5 years ago.  We moved 5 years ago and I do remember working on this in the other place we lived ... so other than over five years ... I don't really know how long this one has been going on for.  There's nothing wrong with the left side of the fabric there, its not blue ... that's just a shadow because I am too lazy to set up for a good photo :o)

When we moved, we actually GET hummingbirds in our yard!  They look just like these ones, and aside from the feeder, I also get two fuchsia plants every summer that they frequent by the kitchen.

There's not too much left to finish this one, there's one more bird that I started up the top, so filling in on the flowers, border and then back-stitching.
